Case Study of the Effect of NDEA Title VII and Other Federal Legislation.
Larson, L. C.
Since the first graduate course in educational media was offered in 1940, the program at Indiana University has grown into an integrated Audio-Visual Center/Division of Instructional Systems Technology program which offered 45 courses in 1968-69. The program seeks to combine opportunities for advanced study, practical experience, and research with a program of professional assistance to faculty members in the selection, development, and use of educational media. It also serves the educational community in such capacities as a library of educational media material and a center for developing and testing instructional materials. Indiana University cooperates with NET (National Educational Television), AID (Agency for International Development), and various foreign countries in projects concerned with instructional technology. During the period 1958-68, federal funds supported over 25 projects, including the National Instructional Television Center, and permitted aid to graduate students, institutes for media specialists, additional courses, and a re-evaluation of the existing curriculum in instructional technology. Although a recent cut in federal appropriations for educational media programs will reduce current activities, substantial progress has been made toward the goal of a professional education program.
